A recent trip to Ohakune for skiing competitions found me searching for the right priced and right location Accommodation. The Peaks Motor Inn fit the bill perfectly. Exceptionally clean and tidy with great Wi-Fi and Sky TV experience. A great location to the Turoa side of the Whakapapa at a fair rate. Room configuration is reasonably typical being a 1... More

My 2 young adult sons and I stayed at Peaks Motor Inn in late June. The two proprietors were incredibly kind and thoughtful to us. They gave excellent suggestions for walks, dining, and were very interested in making sure that we had a nice experience on our trip. The room was very comfortable, clean, quiet and everything we could have... More

Thank you very much! That's the advantage of coming in the off season - although we always want to help guests to get the most out of their time here, it's more achievable for us in the quieter months - May and June. More

Nice place to stay, very helpful managers, all amenities required for stays. Not to far to find all the excellent restuarant's and cafes. Conference room is available and has excellent facilities on offer.

Thanks very much for your review. Yes we are very lucky with the location here -far enough off the main highway to lose the traffic noise, but on the way up to the ski fields and the Tongariro National Park just a short walk away. Restaurants, cafes and village are 1 km away. More

We have a corner room with good view of the snow cap mountain, unfortunately it was raining most of the time during our stay and our view was block by thick cloud.

Thanks for your review. Yes winter in Ohakune can take visitors from hot countries by surprise. At 600 m above sea level this is an alpine climate with quite severe temperatures and a lot of rain in winter. As this converts into quite a lot of snow up on the ski fields we will put up with it! however I... More

Clean modern motel with the most helpful of many friendly staff that we've seen during our three weeks in New Zealand. Ohakune is a very small town. The motel is near to either of the two "business" districts and also near the entrance to Tongariro NP. We'll plan to stay here again when we return for additional hiking in the... More

Thanks for such a descriptive review, and the comment on the beds: they are an upgrade on the usual motel beds which many people comment favourably on to us.

The room was spotless and the bathroom was very clean and fresh. Bedding was spotless and the kitchen had all the essentials. The paintwork was in a very good state throughout-not tired or scratched as you often find in motels. The spa was basic but did the job, and spa towels were provided. Good location.
